Castlefin Celtic are the new Brian McCormick Sports Donegal League Premier Division champions.

This afternoon they defeated last year's winners Kildrum Tigers 5-1 at Park View.

Going into the game, Castlefin knew that victory would assure them of the title.

However, if they slipped up Kilmacrennan Celtic, two points adrift at the start of play, could have forced a play-off or even won the league.

Kilmacrennan beat Milford 7-2 but it was all to no avail as Castlefin did the business on their own patch.

Corrie Lee Bogan opened the scoring on 24 minutes and they really should have been more than 1-0 up at the break.

However, two goals in the first ten minutes of the second half put the result beyond doubt.

Ronan Tourish made it 2-0 on 49 minutes after being found by captain Raymond Foy.

And on 55 minutes Marty Owens flew down the left flank before crossing for Foy who found the target.

Tourish charged in to connect with a JP Malley cross from close range for number four just before the hour mark.

The long-serving Emmet White then added number five in the 69th minute after the visiting defence failed to clear.

Former Finn Harps striker Kevin McHugh got a consolation goal for Kildrum on 79 minutes.

Castlefin had further chances to increase their tally before the end.

This was a first ever Donegal League Premier Division title for the east Donegal club and it was clear from the celebrations just how much it meant to all involved.

The trophy was presented to Raymond Foy and Ronan Tourish by Christina O'Donnell on behalf of the Donegal League.
